Top 14: Stade Français returns empty-handed from Lyon


Authors of a very bad start to the match, the Parisians lost in the Rhône (33-27) and let the defensive bonus slip away in the last

It won't be for this time.

Stade Français, which has never won in Lyon, again lost to Gerland on Saturday afternoon (26-22), collecting its second defeat of the season in as many trips, but at least bringing back the point defensive bonuses.

But if the defeat is there, it is largely linked to a completely failed start to the match by Gonzalo Quesada's men.

In the Rhône, Stade Français did everything wrong at first.

But then, very badly.

A try conceded from Lou's first attack (7-0, 2nd).

A melee in the hard.

Individual errors like this forward on receiving a clearance from Sione Tui for the Australian back's first Top 14 tenure, or even an unspeakable difficulty in existing in front.

20-3 after 20 minutes of play, the afternoon was taking shape badly.

Barré's failed transformation costs the bonus

And then Lyon started investigating fouls, and their manager Xavier Garbajosa's swearing intensified.

The foot of opener Léo Barré and a naughty try at the level of his big scrum-half James Hall (20-13, 32nd) put the Stade Français in the right direction, but the Parisians then did not managed to take advantage of Ethan Dumortier's yellow card and the numerical inferiority of the Lyonnais to get closer before the break.

We didn't see a lot of play afterwards, but Paris had the merit of remaining consistent and solid against the Lyonnais who didn't offer much for 35 minutes.

Less than five minutes from the end, Stade Français scored a virtual bonus point by returning to four points behind their hosts (26-22, 76th).

The hold-up was taking shape with Lyonnais still in numerical inferiority?

An acceleration from Baptiste Couilloud and a double from Davit Niniashvili (79th) later, and Paris moved away again.

"We stupidly take a test at the end, and it's a shame, we leave with zero points", regretted the microphone of Canal + the three-quarter center Julien Delbouis.

Because in stoppage time, the Stade Français had a last opportunity not to leave empty-handed, after the strong try of its hooker Lucas Peyresblanques.

Too cornered for Léo Barré, betrayed by his foot in stoppage time.
